I have a 6-foot Robinia Frisia which is now in its 3rd summer and
has been planted in open ground, but this year so far there is no sign of life - the main trunk of the tree did not even produce leaves last summer. There is one small thorny twig-like branch coming up from the base and that produced a few leaves last year. The top of the tree seems very brittle. Would it do any harm if I 'cut' the tree down to about 3-foot?
